The Grand Palace


29 saves

Wishlisted by Nicole Yu

The entire complex used to be the official residence of the Thai royal family. It was only up until the early 19th century that the Kings decided to move out—making the Dusit Palace their private dwelling place till 1950. Today, the Amphorn Sathan Residence Hall serves as the current home of the reigning monarch. However, the Grand Palace continues to hold royal ceremonies and other official events of the state. It is also worth taking note that the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha or the Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram, could be found within the palace grounds!

Being the uncultured swine that I am, one can guarantee that I'd likely stick out like a sore thumb here. Will definitely go.

@shannenkeisha yes, thanks for pointing that out! Sleeved + anything that covers the knees! But really even scarves and shawls??

Just be sure to be in a sleeved outfit so you don't have to mandatorily buy their souvenir shirts. They don't consider a scarf even.
